Lesson 1. Text B. What is aquaculture?

The broad term “aquaculture” refers to the breeding, rearing and harvesting of plants and animals in all types of water environments, including ponds, rivers, lakes and the ocean. Similar to agriculture, aquaculture can take place in the natural environment or in a manmade environment. Using proved aquaculture techniques and technologies, researchers and the aquaculture industry are “growing”, “producing”, ”culturing” and “farming” freshwater and marine species. More specifically, marine aquaculture refers to the culturing of salt water aquatic species, while freshwater aquatic focuses on the culturing of freshwater species. For example, marine aquaculture production includes oysters, clams, mussels, shrimps and salmon, while freshwater aquaculture operations produce trout, catfish and tilapia

Aquaculture is the fastest growing form of global food production and is significant source of protein for people in many countries. Aquaculture now accounts for about 40% of the seafood consumed by humans worldwide and almost half of the seafood consumed by Americans. Aquaculture is already becoming an important factor in the world’s fish markets.
